Don't have anything to add to this story except that I've been to Charlottetown and it was a very cool little town.

On the plus side,
A shotgun doesn't seem like it would carry anything near a ballistic trajectory if fired straight up. With no rifling to maintain a ballistic arch, wouldn't it just rain lead for a few seconds?

The shooter tried to get away but didn't have the $50 to pay the bridge toll

//you don't think I'm kidding.... do you?

///Charlottetown is a fun town - even more or less everybody really knows everybody - used to go their twice a year for work, recommend the summer months vs. February

Yes, assuming it's lead shot, a rifled slug is pretty heavy and you wouldn't want it coming back down on you. See Dick Cheney for what happens with bird shot long range at a flatter trajectory.

PEI, like much of Canada  is infested with Cobra Chickens.
PEO is very rural, and has a hunting season. Lots of shotgun fire in season.

It would return to earth at no more than terminal velocity, essentially the same speed as any object fired straight up that returns to earth. Still dangerous, but not terribly so, for shot. Get out of the way for a cannonball fired straight up...

On the plus side, the murder rate in PEI is infinitesimal:  the kind of place that can go 10 years without a homicide.

Charging people with firing a rifle into the air might be, er, might prove to be a good way to prevent homicides. Especially if the rules are applied to cops.
